This chapter sums up the key findings of this study on metaphor in literary fiction in the context of French author Michael Tournier's works, suggesting that the works of Tournier impart an imaginary vision of real worlds and that any reading of his fiction is beholden to that vision. It contends that metaphor in linguistic and literary, and even philosophical, arenas tends to circle around the possibilities of non-literal realities and non-literal truths, and also offers some insights into the future of French literature.
